  • Kent Bazemore will re-sign with Hawks
    The Hawks have reached an agreement with Kent Bazemore for a deal worth $70 million over four years.

    Advice: This news also basically means Al Horford has no chance of a return. The Hawks used their two draft picks on potential Bazemore replacements, but they'll have him ready to take on a bigger role in 2016-17 with Jeff Teague in Indiana. Bazemore ran the offense a lot more when he was younger while he was in Summer League and with the Lakers, so that might be a new wrinkle to his game. His fantasy ceiling should increase next season. Additionally, he's having a very happy 27th birthday on Friday. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:48 pm
  • Pelicans agree to deal with E'Twaun Moore
    The Pelicans have an agreement with E'Twaun Moore on a four-year, $34 million deal.

    Advice: Moore had himself a really nice season as a combo guard and stepped up while the Bulls dealt with injuries. He had by far his best year from an efficiency standpoint, making career-highs 48.1 percent from the field and 45.2 percent from deep for his 7.5 points per game. The 27-year-old guard should provide some depth to the second unit, but doesn't have much fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:07 pm
  • Knicks offer Courtney Lee a four-year deal
    The Knicks have made a four-year offer to unrestricted free agent Courtney Lee, but he "has a variety of suitors and is working through the options," according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: Lee is going to be 31 when the season starts, so him getting a four-year deal would be a really nice get. If he does want to go to a contending team, those teams might only be willing to go for three years. It sounds like his deal could be done in the next day or so with the Wolves, 76ers, Hornets, and Kings interested. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:42 pm
  • Jeff Green agrees on one-year deal with Magic
    Jeff Green has reached a one-year, $15 million deal with the Magic.

    Advice: The Magic put a priority on cap space to sign new guys, but so far they have Green, Jodie Meeks and D.J. Augustin. The good news on this deal is that it's only for one year and Meeks is also just for one year, so they'll have money next year. Green is going to compete with Aaron Gordon for playing time. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:34 pm
  • Courtney Lee getting interest from Wolves
    The Wolves have "definite interest" on unrestricted free agent Courtney Lee, according to reporter Darren Wolfson.

    Advice: A lot of teams are after Lee, including the Knicks, Kings, 76ers, Hawks Hornets and more. Lee will be in demand as a combo wing with plus-defense, solid efficiency and at least some capability of handling the ball. He will be 31 years old when the season starts. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:43 pm
  • Pelicans agree to deal with Solomon Hill
    The Pelicans have a verbal agreement on a four-year, $52 million deal with unrestricted free agent Solomon Hill.

    Advice: He saw a big uptick in minutes during the postseason and he still has some room to grow at age 25. Hill is wildly inconsistent, he was out of the rotation earlier in the year, and he's just a career 40.9 percent shooter from the field. The Pelicans likely knew they couldn't get an expensive small forward, so they'll give Hill a chance. He could find himself getting minutes next season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:15 pm
  • Evan Fournier, ORL agree on 5-year extension
    Evan Fournier received a five-year, $85 million contract extension to stay with the Magic.

    Advice: The Magic went over the top to clear out cap space, so there was almost no chance they were going to miss out on Fournier. Former coach Scott Skiles trusted Fournier in a big way, helping the Frenchman average a career-high 15.4 points per game. Now that Victor Oladipo is gone, the 23-year-old wing should get plenty of shots headed his way. He'll get minutes in the mid 30s with coach Frank Vogel as a mid-round fantasy target in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:25 pm
  • 76ers agree to deal with PG Jerryd Bayless
    The 76ers have agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with Jerryd Bayless.

    Advice: All three years of the deal are guaranteed. The 76ers finally have their starting point guard for the 2016-17 season, and Bayless could have some nice low-end fantasy value in Philly after averaging 10.4 points, 3.1 assists, 2.7 boards, 0.9 steals and 1.9 3-pointers in Milwaukee last season. He's not their point guard of the future, but the veteran should be able to hold down the fort for at least one season. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:05 am
  • Suns guarantee P.J. Tucker's contract
    The Suns have officially guaranteed P.J. Tucker's contract for the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: This means that he will be on the books for $5.3 million, which is a great value under the new salary cap. Tucker averaged 8.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 0.8 3-pointers last season, but he shot just 41.1 percent from the floor. He could lose minutes to T.J. Warren next season, so his fantasy outlook isn't promising. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:06 am
  • Solomon Hill linked with UTA, MEM and CHI
    Solomon Hill has been linked to the Jazz, Grizzlies, Mavericks and Bulls.

    Advice: He's generating a lot of interest for a player who averaged 4.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game last season. Regardless of where Hill lands, it's tough to imagine him having any legitimate fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:57 am
  • ESPN: Wizards deal with Bradley Beal is done
    According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN, the Wizards deal with Bradley Beal is done.

    Advice: The deal is expected to be worth around $128 million over five years, so Beal got the max deal that he demanded. While his talent is undeniable, the contract is pretty risky considering he's had some serious durability issues and has never played in more than 73 games in a season. Beal averaged 17.4 points, 3.4 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.9 treys in just 55 appearances last season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:49 am
  • E'Twaun Moore linked to the Wolves
    The Wolves have reached out to free agent guard E'Twaun Moore.

    Advice: He's drawing interest from several teams including the Bucks, but the Bulls will make it a priority to bring him back. The Bulls are still the favorites to re-sign him at this point, and that's probably the best thing for his fantasy value considering he would be competing for minutes with Jerian Grant, Jose Calderon and Spencer Dinwiddie. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:44 am
  • Jeremy Lin agrees to deal with the Nets
    Jeremy Lin has agreed to a three-year, $36 million deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

    Advice: Linsanity is back in New York. Lin worked with Nets coach Kenny Atkinson during his time with the Knicks, so this is a great fit for the 27-year-old. Lin should be the starting PG on opening night and his fantasy value will get a significant boost, while Isaiah Whitehead and Caris LeVert lose a bit of value with this news. Lin's deal includes a player option for the third year. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:10 am
  • Sergey Karasev will play in Russia
    Sergey Karasev has signed a deal to play for Zenit in St. Petersburg in Russia.

    Advice: He probably didn't get much NBA interest after an underwhelming stint with the Nets. We'll let you know if he pops back up on the NBA radar. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:33 am
  • Hornets keep Nicolas Batum on 5-year deal
    Nicolas Batum has reached an agreement with the Hornets on a five-year, $120 million deal.

    Advice: This isn't close to the max for Batum, so it's pretty solid bargain for the Hornets -- relative to the other deals, of course. The Hornets not having to max Batum could help them bring on another free agent, including guys like Courtney Lee or Jeremy Lin. Batum does have a player option for the fifth season, as well. The 27-year-old Frenchman was terrific after the break, averaging 15.0 points, 5.4 boards, 6.1 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys. He'll be an early-round target in fantasy again. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:05 am
  • No deal after meeting for HOU, Bazemore
    Unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore ended his meeting with the Rockets and no deal was reached, according to Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com.

    Advice: Zach Lowe of ESPN reported Bazemore's annual salary could be in the $19 million range, which seems wild for a guy with a career scoring average of 6.4 points. He is coming off a career season and teams favoring an up-tempo style might have his attention. He should have a fun 27th birthday on July 1. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:16 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan to sign 5-year deal w/ Raptors
    DeMar DeRozan has decided to re-sign with the Toronto Raptors on a reported five-year contract worth at least $139 million.

    Advice: He met with the Raptors at the start of free agency and Toronto quickly closed the deal, giving the two-time All-Star just a shade below the full max -- his full max would have been $153 million. DeRozan had a disappointing postseason, but the free agency crop at guard is very thin, and the move keeps Toronto's improving roster intact. He will turn 27 in August, so the Raptors will get him at the tail end of his prime. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • Lance Thomas draws interest as free agent
    Free agent Lance Thomas has reportedly been contacted by the Hawks, Nets, Timberwolves and Thunder.

    Advice: The Knicks are interested in retaining Thomas, but they might not be able to afford him with the probable arrival of Joakim Noah and an emphasis on finding a starting-caliber shooting guard. With multiple teams already vying for his services, Thomas is sure to benefit from this summer's huge salary-cap spike. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:51 pm
  • Lance Thomas getting interest from NO & BK
    The Nets and Pelicans are interested in free agent Lance Thomas, according to Shams Charania on The Vertical Free Agent Show.

    Advice: He's likely a backup plan for both teams with Kent Bazemore is likely to rich for both of these teams while Allen Crabbe is likely headed back to the Blazers. Thomas would have better fantasy value on the Nets. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Courtney Lee is Knicks top SG target
    Courtney Lee is the Knicks' top target at shooting guard according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

    Advice: Lee will meet with the Knicks on Friday, but it's also worth noting that the Kings have interest in the guard as well. Lee would immediately step in as the starting shooting guard in New York, so that would be a decent landing spot for him. Lee averaged 8.9 points for the Hornets last season, shooting 39.2 percent from beyond the arc. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Report: WAS nearing max deal w/ Bradley Beal
    The Wizards and free agent Bradley Beal are reportedly "nearing" agreement on a five-year, $128 million maximum contract.

    Advice: Washington has long been expected to offer Beal a max deal, despite recurring leg injuries that forced him to miss 27 games last season. By quickly reaching an agreement but officially signing Beal late in free agency, they can also proceed with roughly $30 million in cap space to spend elsewhere. All signs point to the Wizards locking up Beal for the long-haul. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Clippers meet w/ FA Jeff Green in Miami
    The Clippers reportedly met with free agent Jeff Green shortly after free agency began on Friday.

    Advice: It's unclear who attended the meeting, which took place in Miami, and the likelihood of Green re-signing is complicated by the Clippers' pursuit of Kevin Durant. Doc Rivers recently suggested that Green would start at SF if he stays with the Clips, so he could see a bump in fantasy appeal if Durant signs elsewhere. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Shams: Kent Bazemore meeting with Rockets
    Unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore planned to hold off meetings until July 5, but is meeting with the Rockets, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

    Advice: James Harden is attending the meeting with Bazemore. The Rockets could have some money to spend with Dwight Howard not coming back, but adding a wing isn't the highest priority. Although, coach Mike D'Antoni's system would be great for Bazemore. He is likely going to get a salary in the teens per year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Austin Rivers to meet with LAC, NYK, POR
    Austin Rivers met with the Clippers on Thursday and is also planning to meet with the Knicks and Blazers on Friday.

    Advice: Rivers would be looking at a backup role on each one of these teams, but he will get a nice raise after a strong finish to the 2015-16 season. Rivers averaged 8.9 points, 1.9 boards, 1.5 assists and 0.9 3-pointers, shooting 43.8 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • ESPN: DeRozan & TOR expected to meet at 12:01
    Unrestricted free agent DeMar DeRozan is expected to meet face-to-face with Raptors officials in Los Angeles shortly after free agency starts at 12:01 EDT.

    Advice: No other teams even have a meeting with DeRozan and the ball is certainly in the Raptors' court. As long as Toronto offers him the max, he'll be re-signing with the only team he's played for since 2009. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:23 pm
  • Wizards setting up to go after Batum?
    The Wizards could "try to make a deal" with unrestricted free agent Nicolas Batum before making Bradley Beal's deal official, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: There has always been some interest from the Wizards now that they're going to have some money left over due to Kevin Durant heading elsewhere. The Wizards do have Otto Porter on the wing and he did show some improvements, but Batum's play-making and defense would be a huge help. A lot of teams will be aggressive on the 27-year-old Frenchman. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 pm
  • Wizards to try to get Beal done tonight
    The Wizards "will try and hammer out framework of new deal" for Bradley Beal early Friday morning, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

    Advice: The Wizards are not going to be able to get Kevin Durant, so they're going to lock up Beal for a five-year, $133 million deal. Talent isn't the question for the 23-year-old Beal, but his oft-injured fibula has been a major concern. The Wizards might want to dial down his minutes to the low 20s. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:02 pm
  • P.J. Tucker's contract becomes guaranteed
    P.J. Tucker's $5.3 million contract became guaranteed on Thursday.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise for one of the Suns' most durable and productive players last year. The Suns now have eight guaranteed contracts and it should be 11 once they sign their three draft picks. Tucker saw 33.6 minutes per game in April for the Suns with the numerous injuries to their perimeter. T.J. Warren (foot) should be a bigger threat for playing time, so Tucker isn't the strongest fantasy target. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:43 pm
  • Report: Batum will meet with Hornets and Mavs
    Nicolas Batum will reportedly have a face-to-face meeting with the Hornets and Mavericks in Dallas once free agency begins.

    Advice: Batum will also do a phone interview with the Knicks, Wizards and Lakers, but those teams seem like a long shot to land Batum's services. The Hornets have said that they will do everything in their power to retain the eighth-year swingman, and given that they can offer him the most money, the odds are currently in Charlotte's favor. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:54 pm
  • Nicolas Batum expected to meet with Mavs
    Nicolas Batum is expected to meet with the Dallas Mavericks.

    Advice: Batum has been thought to be headed back to Charlotte, but it looks like he'll do his due diligence as he hits unrestricted free agency on July 1. The Mavs have been linked to quite a few players thus far, so it would surprise if they don't make a splash with Batum or another big-name free agent. Batum put up mid-round fantasy numbers last season and could see a minor boost to those numbers in Dallas. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:56 am
  • Kent Bazemore could push out FA meetings
    Marc Stein of ESPN reports that Kent Bazemore may not meet with teams until after July 4.

    Advice: This is interesting news seeing as free agency begins on July 1 and teams will want to lock in players so they can move onto other free agents, but Bazemore will have plenty of suitors and shouldn't miss out on any money if he takes this approach. The Nets, Grizzlies, Bucks, Knicks, and others are expected to pursue Bazemore, so it's likely we'll see him with an increased fantasy value on a new team next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:38 am
  • Nets believed ready to make run at Jeremy Lin
    The Nets are interested in making a run at free agent Jeremy Lin, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

    Advice: The Hornets are hopeful that they'll be able to re-sign Lin, but Bonnell reports the Nets may "hard-sell" the 27-year-old. Lin was a solid bench option for the Hornets last season, but would see a boost in fantasy value if he lands on a Nets squad that appears ready to part ways with Jarrett Jack. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:21 am
  • Report: Kent Bazemore chased by MIL, MEM, BKN
    The Bucks, Grizzlies and Nets are all expected to pursue Kent Bazemore in free agency, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.

    Advice: The Knicks have also been mentioned as potential suitors, and it's easy to grasp why Bazemore is a hot commodity. He's a versatile defender who shot 35.7 percent from deep last season, while improving to 81.5 percent at the FT line, and he's missed just 14 games in the past two seasons. With the salary cap spiking to approximately $94 million this summer, Bazemore could receive some eye-popping contract offers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:17 pm
  • Report: Austin Rivers looking for a pay raise
    Austin Rivers is reportedly hoping to command an annual salary of $8 million as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: Rivers is going to really benefit from the salary cap increase, and he already has meetings lined up with the Clippers and several other teams, according to sources of Brad Turner. Rivers is a capable backup, but he's a non-factor in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:49 am
  • Report: NY looking to upgrade the SG position
    The Knicks will reportedly look to upgrade the shooting guard position via free agency.

    Advice: Kent Bazemore, Bradley Beal, Courtney Lee and Kevin Martin are all reportedly on the Knicks' radar, with Bazemore being their first choice. Beal is will be a restricted free agent, and it doesn't seem likely that the Knicks will be able to lure him away from Washington, even if they come in with a max-deal. Lee and Martin are realistic targets, although they wouldn't have all that much value in New York fighting for touches with the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:15 am
  • Report: Knicks will go after Kent Bazemore
    The Knicks will reportedly pursue unrestricted free agent Kent Bazemore.

    Advice: Bazemore's preference would be to re-sign with the Hawks, but he's not ruling out the Knicks because he could fill a need for them at the wing. Bazemore reportedly won't set up any meetings until he hears what the Hawks are offering, but if he doesn't like Atlanta's initial offer, he'll give teams like the Knicks and Pelicans an opportunity to make their pitch. Bazemore is reportedly seeking an annual salary in the range of $16 million. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 am
  • ORL extends qualifying offer to Evan Fournier
    The Magic have officially extended a qualifying offer to Evan Fournier, making him a restricted free agent.

    Advice: The Magic will now be able to match any offer Fournier receives on the open market, and all indications are that the Orlando franchise will do everything they can to retain him. With Victor Oladipo no longer a part of the equation, Fournier will have a clear path to minutes as the team's unquestioned starting two-guard, and he'll likely take on a more proactive role on offense. As a starter last season, Fournier compiled averages of 15.6 points, 2.7 assists, 2.0 triples and 1.3 steals on 45.9 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:28 am
  • Report: Batum, Horford, Anderson on WAS radar
    Nicolas Batum, Al Horford and Ryan Anderson will reportedly be some of Washington's top free agency targets.

    Advice: If Batum winds up in Washington, he would essentially destroy the fantasy value of Otto Porter, and Kelly Oubre would really struggle to get into the rotation. The interest in Anderson is reportedly mutual, although there haven't been any reports of Horford seeking a partnership with the Washington franchise. With Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat locked up long-term, it would be strange to see Horford sign with the Wizards. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:15 am
  • Report: 76ers interested in UFA Courtney Lee
    The 76ers are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Courtney Lee.

    Advice: Lee reportedly is more of a backup plan for the 76ers, but there's no indication that the feeling is mutual. While the 76ers could offer Lee a ton of money, it would be surprising to see him choose to join a team going through a rebuild at this stage in his career. The Kings are also said to be in the mix to sign Lee, but Lee's first choice would be to re-up with the Hornets. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:32 am
  • Report: Jazz interested in UFA Solomon Hill
    The Jazz have reportedly "heavily scouted" Solomon Hill and are interested in signing him as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: The feeling is reportedly mutual, although he's also been receiving interest from multiple teams around the league. With the salary cap set to spike to $94 million next season, Hill should be able to earn a deal in the $9 to $13 million range, which the Jazz could easily do as they're currently well under the cap. If Hill does wind up in Utah, he'd more than likely backup Gordon Hayward, so it wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops. The Jazz will also reportedly go after Luol Deng, but Hill is their preferred target. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:55 pm
  • Magic plan to match offers on Evan Fournier
    The Orlando Magic plan to match any offers restricted free agent Evan Fournier receives this summer, according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders.

    Advice: Magic GM Ryan Hennigan has said re-signing Fournier will be one of Orlando's top priorities this summer and the draft night trade of Victor Oladipo spoke volumes to that commitment. Fournier averaged 15.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.0 treys last season and should be able to improve upon his fantasy value in 2016-17 with Oladipo now in Oklahoma City. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:38 am
  • Report: Lakers could meet with DeMar DeRozan
    The Lakers could get a free agent meeting with DeMar DeRozan, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

    Advice: Although it was reported that DeRozan is focused on working out a new deal in Toronto and was not seeking meetings with other teams, Amick writes that the Lakers remain lurking in the background. Other teams known to have interest in DeRozan include the Clippers, Warriors, Heat, Knicks and Magic. To be clear, Amick makes it obvious that the Raptors should be considered in a class alone as the frontrunners for DeRozan's services. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:45 am
  • Bulls view E'Twaun Moore as priority in FA
    The Bulls view re-signing E'Twaun Moore as a priority in free agency.

    Advice: The Bulls have Jerian Grant, Jose Calderon, Spencer Dinwiddie and not a whole lot else at the point guard position, and Moore is also attractive because he can play both backcourt spots. After enjoying some sustained success in Chicago last season, Moore seems likely to be back in the Windy City. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:35 am
  • Report: Hornets fearful of losing Jeremy Lin
    Although Charlotte would like to re-sign Jeremy Lin, the Hornets are "fearful" that they'll lose him in free agency, sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

    Advice: The Hornets don't have Lin's Bird Rights, so that makes re-signing him more complicated than it otherwise could be. Lin is expected to meet with three other clubs as soon as free agency opens, and his priority this summer is to find a club that believes in him so he can find a real NBA home. "I've played six years in the NBA; I've played on five different teams. I've played for two D-League teams -- so seven cities in six years. I'm tired of boxes, I'm tired of moving companies, and I want to find a home," he said. "I want to see how good I can become," Lin said. "I'm 27, and an athlete's prime, or at least in the NBA, your prime is usually 27-30. That's when you kind of peak physically [and] mentally and that's where most players perform their best. So I'm going into my prime and I want to see how great I can be as a player, and that's my purpose in free agency -- so I'll just exhaust every opportunity to see which one will be the best for me." Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:43 am
  • Report: Courtney Lee asking for $14M annually
    Courtney Lee is looking for $14 million per season on his next contract, according to KSTP's Darren Wolfson.

    Advice: That seems like a big number for Lee, but all asking prices will be inflated given where the NBA's salary cap is headed. It's certainly conceivable—and quite likely—that Lee fetches a double-digit number on an annual basis, and a potential bidding war could certainly drive Lee's price up to or beyond his reported asking price. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:43 am
  • Jeremy Lin 'open' to a return to the Knicks
    Jeremy Lin said that he's "open" to returning to the Knicks, although he doesn't feel it's very likely that it will happen.

    Advice: "It’s not looking likely, because they just traded for Derrick Rose," Lin said. "But I will say, ever since I left I’ve been open to going back, and I still am. Never say never. That’s the one thing in the NBA. Never say never. So I’ve always been open, but right now, I’m not sure it’s the best timing." Lin will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but the Knicks wouldn't be a great fit, particularly with playing time being one of the more important things for him. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:18 pm
  • Kings linked to UFA Courtney Lee
    The Kings are interested in free agent shooting guard Courtney Lee according to Kings Insider James Ham.

    Advice: The Kings could use an upgrade at shooting guard and Ben McLemore is rumored to be available in trade talks, so Lee would make sense. Coach Dave Joerger is said to be a fan of Lee and obviously coached him in Memphis, but it's unclear if the interest is mutual. The Hornets traded for Marco Belinelli which might mean they're preparing to lose Lee in free agency, as he will reportedly demand around $10 million per season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:37 am
  • DeRozan not planning to meet with other teams
    DeMar DeRozan does not plan to schedule meetings with other teams at the start of free agency, according to Tim McMahon of ESPN.com.

    Advice: He is going to focus on agreeing to terms with the Raptors. DeRozan has said his mindset has always been Toronto for basically the entire season, including after he was knocked out of the postseason. The Raptors can offer DeRozan a five-year, $153 million deal. General manager Masai Ujiri said his No. 1 goal is to bring the 2015-16 All-Star back, so the Raptors are heavy favorites. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:52 pm
  • Kent Bazemore would like to re-sign with ATL
    Kent Bazemore said that he would love to stay in Atlanta.

    Advice: "I am a free agent again this summer and would love to stay in Atlanta," Bazemore said. "The one thing I have learned throughout this journey is how important balance is. The game takes up a huge amount of your time, and those moments you step away from it, you want to be happy. I have grown so much in Atlanta, not only as a player but as a person, too." The Hawks drafted two small forwards on Thursday, but general manager Wes Wilcox made it clear that re-signing Bazemore is still a top priority for the franchise. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:50 am
  • Bradley Beal will not play in Olympics
    Bradley Beal will not participate for Team USA this summer.

    Advice: Beal announced it in a statement on his Twitter account: "I could not be more grateful for the invitation to represent my country, as it is the ultimate honor, however it is with deep regret that I have declined the opportunity to participate with Team USA this summer in Rio. I have made the decision to dedicate this summer to getting in the best physical shape of my life and feel it is imperative that I stay true to my plan so I can be at my very best supporting my coaches and teammates for the upcoming season." This is good news for the Wizards due to how Beal has so many injuries to his leg. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:22 pm
  • Warriors linked with Nicolas Batum
    If the Warriors can't sign Kevin Durant, they are expected to look at Nicolas Batum in free agency.

    Advice: Things aren't looking good for Harrison Barnes' future in Golden State. The Thunder are likely still the favorites to re-sign Durant, while Batum is likely going to receive several max offers and Charlotte will do everything in their power to keep him. For what it's worth, Evan Turner's name has also popped up, but he would be a questionable fit in Golden State since he's not much of a shooter. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:40 am
  • Hawks will still make Bazemore a priority
    Even though the Hawks drafted two small forwards, they will still make re-signing Kent Bazemore a priority in free agency.

    Advice: "I will say Kent Bazemore is absolutely a Hawks priority," general manager Wes Wilcox said after the draft. "We love Kent. He is a huge part of what we do. I don’t think there should be any confusion as to how important Kent is to us." The Hawks drafted two small forwards in the first round in Taurean Prince and DeAndre Bembry, but Wilcox said that he simply took the best player available with each pick.

  • Lance Thomas drawing interest as free agent
    The Thunder, Nets and Mavericks reportedly have interest in free agent Lance Thomas.

    Advice: The Knicks hope to re-sign Thomas, who spent the 2015-16 season backing up Carmelo Anthony, but they'll have plenty of competition. The New York Post suggested that Thomas could earn around $4.5 million annually with the salary cap increasing, but he'll need an ideal landing spot to emerge with fantasy relevance.

  • Report: DeMar DeRozan will play for Team USA
    DeMar DeRozan has committed to playing for Team USA.

    Advice: Paul George, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Kyle Lowry, Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins, Jimmy Butler, Carmelo Anthony and DeAndre Jordan will join DeRozan in Rio, so the US squad will obviously be favored to take home the gold. Kyrie Irving is still undecided as to whether or not he will participate. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:34 am
  • Jeremy Lin opts for unrestricted free agency
    Jeremy Lin declined to pick up his player option for 2016-17, making him an unrestricted free agent as of July 1.

    Advice: It was already reported that Lin would opt for free agency, so this merely confirms his decision. Addressing his priorities as a free agent earlier this month, Lin said, "To be happy, I need to consider a few things. Of course I am going to consider who is coaching the team, the team’s style, the players on the team and their chance of winning, as well as the on-court time I have and if I have a chance to start." A starting job might be feasible but there are copious teams in need of backcourt depth, so Lin should have no lack of suitors. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:22 pm
  • Bulls hoping to re-sign E'Twaun Moore
    The Bulls are hoping to re-sign E'Twaun Moore this offseason.

    Advice: While the Bulls would like to keep Moore in the fold, the 27-year-old is expected to receive plenty of interest as an unrestricted free agent this summer. Moore averaged 10.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.2 three-pointers in 27.2 minutes per game after the All-Star break and could be worth a late-round flier if he lands in the right situation.
